Crain’s LA spotlights EOY Greater Los Angeles finalists and their Venice experience

Two EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Greater Los Angeles finalist companies, inMarket and StackCommerce, sat down with Crain’s to share their unique experiences establishing headquarters in the eclectic and diverse LA neighborhood known as “Silicon Beach.” In 2011, Venice was known more for skateboards than startups and Snapchat. But, that year, Google leased 100,000 square feet of space in Venice to relocate from Santa Monica. Dollar Shave Club would soon begin shipping razors from a Venice garage.

 
“Venice brought us The Doors in the ’60s, and in the early 1900s Venice was like Disneyland. It’s always been a place for new things, entrepreneurs who are pushing forward, rulebreakers rather than rule followers,” said Todd Dipaola, CEO of inMarket. “That’s always attracted me to Venice.”

KTLA spotlights study out of USC Marshall on photography and memory

Researchers from leading universities, including the University of Southern California (USC) Marshall School, have released a study that says that people who take incessant pictures are able to remember events better than those who do not. Researchers conducted a study in which they gathered individuals and asked them to take a tour of a museum, half of them with cameras and half of them without cameras, but with an audio guide to help them out.

“The people who take a lot of photos focus on the visual aspect,” said Dr. Kristin Diehl, associate professor of marketing at USC Marshall School of Business. “This visual memory is helped by taking photos.”
